WWE WrestleMania 41 is headed to "Sin City."

The official location and venue for the 2025 WrestleMania event was revealed during the preshow of the Kentucky Derby 2024. WrestleMania XLI will emanate from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 19th and 20th. There had been rumblings prior to the announcement that Las Vegas had taken over as the front runner for WWE's biggest annual event next year.

It's a huge win for those who were hoping for far warmer weather for a Mania show than WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia.

Minneapolis, Minnesota had been thought of to be the favorite for the WrestleMania 41 location for months. Reports had been swirling claiming that WWE actually had a video package ready to roll out during WrestleMania 40 to announce the location for the 2025 show, but the decision was made to axe that plan.

It became quite clear that WWE was shifting direction ahead of its big announcement at the Kentucky Derby 2024. Many fans who attended the two-night WrestleMania special at Lincoln Financial Field complained of cold weather. This was quite noticeable on the first night, as the crowd wasn't as energetic as expected due to the harsh cold weather.

While WrestleMania 40 Sunday was more kind to fans in terms of temperature, WWE President Nick Khan appeared at the Sports Business Journal’s World Congress of Sports conference and hinted that the company's biggest show would not be returning to the east coast in the month of April.
